    'BOYS DUMP VANDERJERK, SIGN HAMBURGLAR

    The Dallas Cowboys, in a somewhat surprising move, have cut veteran kicker Mike Vanderjagt, and have signed kicker Martin Gramatica to replace him, according to Ed Werder of ESPN.

    Vaderjagt signed a three-year, $6 million deal with the Cowboys in the offseason, after his contract with the Colts expired. The veteran kicker ended his career in Indy by badly missing a field goal attempt that would have sent an AFC divisional playoff game against the Steelers to overtime.

    Vanderjagt received a $2.5 million signing bonus, and he'll be entitled to receive the balance of his $810,000 salary for 2006, if he chooses to exercise his one-time right to termination pay. In Dallas, he missed five of 18 field goal attempts in eleven games.

    Gramatica once upon a time was one of the premier kickers in the game, but fell out of favor in Tampa and since then has bounced around the league.

    Our guess? Gramatica is a short-term solution, and there will be more moves before the end of the season.

    As to Vanderjagt, he'll first pass through waivers. If his contract is not claimed, he'll become a free agent.

    Why do we have a feeling that he'll land in New England -- and that he'll get his ultimate shot at redemption in a playoff game against the Colts?


    The only way that this happens is unless he can play MLB.
